360/VR Experience


"[A]n eerily realistic film that puts the viewer in the middle of each scene…. The project was inspired by a fellowship at the Sundance New Frontier Lab in Miami, where Rodriguez was encouraged "to experiment, to go beyond what most people do in filmmaking." The immersive and interactive experience is certainly that" - Miami Herald

"[E]ven more emotionally charged and culturally important than [filmmakers Rivera and Rodriguez] could ever imagine." - Miami New Times
